Promising young midfielder Lewis Brunt has signed a new deal with Leicester City that keeps him at the Football Club until at least 2025.
- Leicester City Development Squad midfielder Lewis Brunt pens new contract to 2025
- The 21-year-old joined Leicester City from Aston Villa in July 2021
- He made his Premier League debut for the Foxes in May
The new deal comes after a season that saw the versatile midfielder, who can also play in defence, make his debut for City’s first team in the Emirates FA Cup in January 2022.
The 21-year-old played a full 90 minutes in that game as City went on to secure a 4-1 win over Watford at King Power Stadium – something he later built on by making his Premier League bow as a substitute away to Tottenham Hotspur in May.
Brunt joined the Foxes from West Midlands side Aston Villa in July 2021 after two loan spells at National League North side Gloucester City. He went on to make 21 appearances for the Development Squad last season in Premier League 2 Division 1, scoring three goals.
The youngster was recognised for his standout displays during the 2021/22 season, scooping Development Squad Player of the Season at the Club’s annual End of Season Awards.
